    Egypt Football Riot Investigated

    Egypt's football federation has been dissolved from violence erupting
    after a match, leaving At least 74 people dead, and hundreds more
    injured in Port Said. Supporters of the home team Al Masry and
    Egypt's top club Al Ahly stormed the pitch and scores of fans were
    stabbed to death and others suffocated after they became trapped in a
    corridor as they tried to flee. The clashes, which are the worst case
    of football violence in the country and the deadliest worldwide since
    1996, have sparked fresh concerns about Egypt's stability. Many
    Egyptians have blamed the police and the ruling military for failing
    to prevent the rioting, amid claims the security lapse was intended to
    stoke uncertainty.
